Khiraule Gumba / Monastery is the local tourist destination in Mahakulung Solukhumbu. Name of the monastery is Ngonga Thyakchhok Chholing Monastery which was Estd in 1738. It is one of the oldest monasteries in Nepal and highly appreciated by visitors because of its mesmerizing and unique external design. The monastery, surrounded by the tall pine trees which is rarely found in Nepal, is believed to have been brought from Darjeeling more than 200 years ago by its patrons. Cultural significance of this monastery is equally valued because it is said that “Silent Meditation” (ङ्युङने Nyungne in Sherpa and मौन ब्रत Moun Brat in Nepali) actually started from this Monastery in eastern Nepal.

 

Every month of “Dasami” (Tenth Day of the full moon day) is a special day for villagers to worship the Buddha by lighting a number of butter lamps. So “Dasami” (tenth moon day) is an important tradition of the villagers to pray and puja at the monastery. 1934 and 1989 and 25 April 2015 earthquakes affected certain parts of the Monastery. So, Now a days the local people started to reconstruct the monastery again.
